Unnatural Creatures: Stories selected by Neil Gaiman
This was an excellent spooky read for fall! If you're doing RIP, be sure to grab this new collection of stories chosen by Neil Gaiman. They are all stories about creatures. And it's brand-spanking-new--for once I got in early!
There is a great variety--some stories are old, some are contemporary. They are funny or creepy--or both. I particularly liked the first selection (which does not have a pronounceable title), "The Compleat Werewolf," and "Come, Lady Death." Gaiman's own contribution is "Sunbird," which I have read somewhere before but is well worth a re-read, and of course he had to include a Diana Wynne Jones selection, which is "The Sage of Theare." (I don't know why that one; I can think of a few others that are more in line with the creature theme, but hey, I like the story just fine.)
Pick this up if you like creepy, or fantasy, or Halloween reads.
